Photos of the NextEra Energy Duane Arnold Energy Center in rural Palo

 

Photographer Jim Slosiarek captured these images for Sunday’s Gazette article about the NextEra Energy Duane Arnold Energy Center in Palo, Iowa. After 45 years of operation, the state’s only nuclear power plant is slated to close. The plant’s Florida-based owner, NextEra Energy, announced last summer that Duane Arnold would end energy production by the end of 2020.
